The space
The Shabbin Playhouse is a tiny home which sets back in the Alpine forest with big spruce trees surrounding the area. The porch is a nice place to sit, Look at stars or sometimes the Aurora Borealis, listen to the sounds of the glacier feed creek flowing by or in spring the squawking of Eagles returning and the trumpeting sounds of the beautiful Trumpeter Swans. See some Mallard Ducks resting in the pond ~ early summer around the Middle of May - End of July watch the hummingbirds, sparrows and some bats flying around along with occasional... Deer.. Moose...Black bear....Brown bear....Mountain goats...Coyotes...Links...Porcupines..Spruce hens.. Ermines...Hawks...Rabbits..Shrews...Mosquitoes... In the midst of summer listen to Owls hooting at dusk and into early night. Stellar Blue Jays, Camp robbers ( the bird) and Magpies pass on by. In the fall and right into winter listening to all the sounds of the Eagles and watching them fly right in front or overhead of you is pretty awesome! 100's of Eagles following the salmon up the Lowe river valley perched amongst the trees.

Inside the Shabbin is a small comfortable space that offers all amenities needed. Open the window listen to the creek. There is a small TV with a provided HDMI cable if you have a device to use. The kitchen area allows for making any meal. Salt, pepper and paper towels are provided. Ice cube trays in freezer. There is counter space for eating with two stools to sit on. The countertop is on hinges so it slides about 6" back and forth. The stone & tile shower is refreshing after traveling and being out doors. Face cloths with shower and hand towels provided. There is a Toilet with toilet paper supplied. Shelving with baskets for clothing or smaller gear bags. The bed is comfortable covered with clean linens and pillows. There is some storage space under the bed in 2 storage totes that rollout/extra linens.Relax while reading from a collection of mostly Alaska books (Please don't take books off property) or playing cards, Cribbage, Yatzy or Jenga.

It’s Alaska and you should expect mosquitos. There is a tennis mosquito zapper to use. Please use it in side if needed v.s. smearing them on the walls or ceiling ;-).

Out side there is room to park a snow machine, boat or travel trailer. Please let me know in advance (no fee).
If you are traveling in a group with a RV there's room to park and use that too for an additional fee. Please let me know your plan in advance by texting me for details.
If you are traveling in a group with a few tenters there's room to set up tents for an additional fee. Please let me know your plan in advance by texting me for details. $15 per additional guest a night.

There's a fire pit and a gas grill available to use(not winter). You can purchase some fire wood in town for about $5 a bundle or use firewood provided possible to collect sticks on the ground or bring your own. Please be respectful don't cut trees down. The fire pit is a cement ring, keep fire with in ring, no huge bonfires , no loud music and inviting other groups to the property. It is a good idea to notify in advance by text if you are planning a fire.

The Shabbin is cute and You should expect it to be small.As you can see in pictures the shower door is clear and no door for the toilet. There is a curtain folded above if needed. The idea is to get outside. Explore The Chugach, Valdez - Go in the Mountains to Shred some Pow turns, Heli boarding, Skinning, Cross Country Skiing (Valdez has great groomed trails) Snow shoeing, Snow machining, Snow or water Kiting, Tundra Hike or Bike. Go deeper into the Old growth Alpine Forest its absolutely amazing. There are Great trails all over the Valdez area. (search= Valdez, Alaska hiking trails)

Take out a Pack raft, SUP, Kayak in the sound, Robe Lake, Solomon Gulch and watch some wild life and experts can get the adrenaline going in the river's.GoTake a Heilcopter sight seeing tour.
Go catch fish on your boat or charter a boat from one of many operators Valdez has to offer. The fish hatchery is a great place to learn the history and how the salmon leave and return to these waters. While there it's possible to see Sea Lions, Harbor seals, Otters, Puffins, Eagles, Bears, Salmon and occasionally a Whale. Go visit the old town site and the Museums. Get out side & Play!

Furry Friends & Animal lovers, I like them too, however it is very hard to clean and remove the animal fur and smell from a home. I don't mind dogs if you can be ok with them staying out side. If you really need them in the home we will need to discuse additional cleaning fees. Message me for details.
Relax. Be Adventurist. Read a book. Enjoy your stay. Valdez! III

Where you’ll be

Valdez, Alaska, United States

Thompson’s Pass is just about a 15 minute drive. A quick 3 mile drive up the road is Keystone canyon which has spectacular water falls that dump into the Lowe river as seen in the 2002 movie staring Al Pacino, Robin Williams & Hilary Swank" Insomnia ". The water falls offer amazing world class Ice climbing during the winter months. There is a nice trail head of the Historic Pack trail " Goat Trail " for good hiking and a higher view of Bridal Veil falls. Then just two bends down the road are a few bolted rock climbing routs and the old train tunnels. Beyond Keystone canyon rests the spectacular Thompson's Pass.
A little walk from the Shabbin is a park with a Playground for kids. There is a basketball and tennis court which are aged. A bit further you can access the Lowe river bed and walk looking for neat rocks.
There are no commercial stores or gas stations. You will need to go to town for those amenities.
Town is 13 miles to the west.
